Just a thought by Judith Martin-Straw

Just a Thought – Wife Beater Street

Just a Thought – Wife Beater Street

When the vote passed with five ayes, I was appalled. At the council meeting last Monday night, Jan. 28, our reps voted to start the process to re-name Bush Way ( a small conduit street off of Sepulveda)  as "Albert and Ursula Vera Way." Excuse me ? We are going to post a sign to glorify the most corrupt official in living memory ? How about the sickest marriage anyone around here can recall? [...]

Just a Thought – Game Changer

Just a Thought – Game Changer

A lot of thought has been put into the subject; how do we stay safe ? The answer is that we can't. We can be more prepared, we can be more understanding, but we can't be safe. Not unless we are willing to change the game. United Parents of Culver City have raised a lot of good questions, and School Superintendent David LaRose has offered some good perspective on our schools system's resources. [...]

Just a Thought – Three is Magic Number

Just a Thought – Three is Magic Number

It's a great time to celebrate, because we're three! As Culver City Crossroads moves into it's third year, we're still at the intersection of local and noteworthy, and happy to be here. This past year we've added an RSS feed, opened our "CC Foodie" page, and reported on another important local election. Posting almost a thousand stories this past year (987 to be precise) Crossroads is still [...]

Just a Thought – Ricochet Shot

Just a Thought – Ricochet Shot

Seldom is change the stone that drops into the water, sending out the ripples. It is the ripples, and what happens because of them. I know that you’ve been discussing it for days, hearing every detail from every source, and I’m rippling here, but it’s just the physics of the situation; I can’t not. Consider, if not a ripple, perhaps a ricochet shot. I have known too many people [...]

Just A Thought – Sleeping With Gratitude

Just A Thought – Sleeping With Gratitude

I slept in a bed. It's still absolutely awesome. One of the strange gifts of age is that time seems to pass so quickly, the theory of relativity is not just theory. Time flies whether you are having fun or not. Of course, having kids does that as well; mine seem to be discussing their Hallowe'en costumes on the Fourth of July and planning the next birthday party before the cake is finished. (I [...]

Just A Thought – The Rape on the Bus

Just A Thought – The Rape on the Bus

It is not going away. The rape on the bus is back in the news, and you get another chance to think about it. The main reason the it got stuck to the tag "Local News - Culver City" is because the bus was in Culver City when the crime was committed. It was not a Culver City Bus, nor, as far as current evidence is available, are either the survivor or the perpetrator Culver City residents. Now [...]

Just a Thought – The Really Good News About the Election

Just a Thought – The Really Good News About the Election

I had not realized how very stressed I was about the election until Wednesday morning, when I woke up feeling lighter. As if I'd put down some 50-pound weight I'd been carrying around for goodness knows how long. I suppose I did not notice it, because it just got a little heavier every day for months. Now that it was gone, I did notice that my shoulders were tight, and my biceps were sore. Really [...]

Just a Thought – Invisible

Just a Thought – Invisible

I really could not stand to watch the debate last night. I had it on for about fifteen minutes while my girls were playing piano and I was cooking dinner. There was the initial flash of conflict- hey, this is an important political moment and there's too much daily life going on around here to listen. I was going to turn the heat down on the potatoes and ask the girls to stop practicing. Then I [...]

Just a Thought – Dear Mr. Brunson

Just a Thought – Dear Mr. Brunson

I was going to begin "Dear Reggie," but that kind of typifies the behavior that seems to be creating problems here, so I'll begin with 'I am sorry.' I was wrong. I had some good intentions, but what I did did not solve problems, it created more. Please accept my apologies. I am not a person who thinks a lot about hierarchy. I think about structure, I think about relationship, I think about [...]

Just a Thought – The Battle of Hogwarts

Just a Thought – The Battle of Hogwarts

Both of my kids are starting at new schools this fall, and it’s daunting. I have had to take a long look in the mirror and ask myself about education, and what it is, and what I want for them. How do I really teach them ? How do I get them excited about learning? How do I train them and equip them for their futures? A part of our summer routine has floated easily into being a part of our [...]
